Always there are pressures on time and money and choices have to be made. Most advisers should probably think of the Financial Advice New Zealand conference in August first, and then decide whether to add the Financial Services Council conference in September. These people in particular should all take a good look at the FSC programme and add that in to your diary: dealer group heads, advisers business owners with ten plus staff, adviser business compliance leaders, and national sales managers.
The content that makes the difference in your decision-making is on both main stage and in the communities of interest workshops.
Main stage we have an extensive panel of ministers in government and opposition, the heads of RBNZ and FMA, and regulators - as well as some amazing personal stories.
In the communities of interest there is the dealer group lunch, with exclusive access to FMA and MBIE leaders. I would also recommend the session on reconciling competing client goals and objectives, which features leading advisers and technologists. Consider adding in a session from the underwriting stream, and of course, ensure you return to the main stage for the close of the day.
There are more speakers being announced all the time, but over thirty are listed at this link.
The entire conference is worthwhile attending, but if it helps to reconcile your time pressure you can pack the content above into just one day if you like, and just pay the single day rate.
